Derek and Alex go to visit Laura, who wakes up as Derek calls for some more meds. She asks where her baby is, and the guys assure her that she's struggling but hanging in there. Laura wants to see her but Derek tells her gently that she can't yet, as neither she nor the baby is strong enough to move from where they are now -- it doesn't go over well. Laura descends into a panic and cries frantically that she can't die before she sees her baby, begging to know what if she dies before she's ever held? It's too much and she starts to seize, which is of course right when Alex gets an emergency page about the baby.
He joins Arizona, and as they work, Charles comes back with Wallace's x-rays. She tries to push him off but Charles tells her seriously she'll want to look, and she has him hold them up so she can quickly see what's going on. She begins swearing when she realizes he's got a bowel obstruction and his body isn't compensating for it, so Alex insists she go since he's got the baby covered.
Cristina is checking out her patient, and notes that her right hip has written on it, "Right hip okay." I can see where this is especially important, given that her legs resemble Ava's face back when the ferry hit the dock lo these many seasons ago, but Hillary gripes that someone has already done it. Cristina assures her that many more will, too, and Hillary's parents tell her to let the doctor do her job. Hunt and Callie then come in, and each sort of hesitates before admitting the tox screen came back and showed that Hillary was on some sort of very technical-sounding drug. I can see that breaking it to them wouldn't be super easy, but I never took these two to be cowards hiding behind medical terms that of course the patient and family wouldn't know. When they hesitate to translate their medical-ese, Avery nicely quips that Hillary was shrooming. Callie then belatedly says they are talking about magic mushrooms. Hillary's parents are aghast and start lecturing her about how they are so disappointed, which shocks the docs a little until Hillary retaliates in a bored fashion. She's clearly a pro at being a bored, egotistical nightmare and she assures her parents that she's actually the opposite of a disappointment, given how she gets straight A's, is the school president, runs the paper, etc. She then gets all wordy and talks about how she was "exploring the bounds of her consciousness," which, give me a break. She then says she took a calculated risk going on the roof (still, no one has mentioned just how ridiculously high this roof must have been) but she claims they are upset because it reminds them of their own fallibility, and like she's talking to a child, she says she knows they are bummed. Cristina and Avery smirk while her dad just simmers but says nothing and Hillary oozes, "I'm bummed too." I have no patience for this -- these are the kids these days who are doing nothing at jobs and expecting raises because they feel they are deserved them and no one is allowed to reprimand them. I got amazing grades and had lots of extracurricular activities in high school too, and let me tell you about how I would have been skinned alive for ever talking to them like that. Gah! Clearly, this snotty entitlement is a pet peeve of mine, and very clearly I am a full-fledged adult for how often this sends me to my soapbox. Learn some humility and work ethic, it will serve you well. And also, get off my lawn! I'm not supposed to be getting upset, though, I'm supposed to be giggling -- the kooky music on the soundtrack is telling me so. Sorry, music.
